Reflecting upon the Light of Christ and His Mother

J.M.J. + O.B.T.
Pope Benedict's inspired words to a crowd of 30,000 faithful in St. Peter's Square, "after Mary, pure reflection of the light of Christ, it is the Apostles, their word and their testimony, that convey the truth of Christ to us." Our Holy Father invites us to contemplate both glorious faces: the pure, absolute light of Our Lord and Savior and the love reflected in the eyes of Mary His Mother. It is in seeing this mystery more clearly that we might come to recognize just how much the Christian world has lost since the Reformation. Like Jesus, we are all in need of Motherly Love especially when we are carrying our cross. Mary stood by her Son till the very end, she is the Mother of all the living.

To be Catholic is to be decidedly both/and.

All generations will call her Blessed!

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Christ!
See you on the High Ground!
